” Libyan Interim Assembly is facing an ` Impending Coup’ after a `Group of Ex-Rebel Militia’ issue a five-hour Deadline”

#AceWorldNews says that the Libyan interim assembly said it was facing an impending coup on Tuesday after a group of ex-rebel militias issued a five-hour deadline to hand over power.

Powerful militias from the western town of Zintan gave the General National Congress, Libya’s highest authority, the deadline, or said it would kidnap any lawmaker.

Commanders from the Zintan militias appeared on television on Tuesday and blamed the Muslim Brotherhood and “ideological and extremist groups” for the country’s chronic instability since the 2011 uprising that toppled the four-decade rule of Muammar Gaddafi.
